Well it's that time of the year again. Halloween is in the air, the leaves are changing colour and CJAM hits the airwaves for your support. Yes it is time for the annual Pledge Drive. The one time a year that CJAM members ask their families, friends and of course loyal listeners to help support another year of quality alternative programming.
The on-air part of the Pledge Drive starts on Friday, November 4th at noon and runs for one week until Friday, November 11 at noon. This is the what's called the pre-pledge portion, where the volunteers hit up their families and friends for their support. You know I have been the host of Cowboys & Indies, a British indie and alternative show for over 20 years now. It is more important than ever in hard economic times for us to find sources of revenue to keep CJAM functioning 24/7/365. CJAM is a non-profit volunteer led organization. We provide alternatives to the mainstream/commercial radio and news world that is far to prevalent today. From non-mainstream news to ethnic programming representing many different cultures to voices for marginalized people from different backgrounds and of course music that challenges and entertains.
All I am asking you at this time is to make a pledge promise. Just simply send me an message with your address and details and pledge amount. I will do the rest. I will then email you with instructions on how to fulfill your pledge in a couple weeks. No amount is to small. What matters is CJAM staying on air for another year.
You can pay online at the CJAM website (www.cjam.ca) if you want to pay by credit card or Paypal. Fear not all is secure and your details are and will not be sold to outside parties. Just simply follow the easy instructions. Just drop me a quick message if you choose this method so I can thank you personally.
Thanks for the support,
Cowboys & Indies
